Speech and Language Therapy focuses on the assessment and management of all aspects of communication including speech, written expression, reading, signs, and gestures.
Speech and Language Therapy focuses on enabling children to realize their maximum communicative abilities through individualized assessment and intervention programs.
Intervention targets are cleverly disguised through play activities that tap into the child’s motivations to strengthen his or her areas of difficulties.
